Young Girl Believed to be Cured of HIV Relapses

A four-year-old Mississippi girl who was believed to have been cured of HIV has relapsed, showing detectable levels of the virus, federal officials said Thursday (July 10th) in a blow to the anti-HIV fight. The girl had been been off antiretroviral drug therapy for more than two years, and doctors had believed she could be a model for wiping out the virus in babies born with it.

The girl was given anti-AIDS therapy nearly immediately after her birth and continued treatment for months. But after the girl missed several treatment appointments, doctors found she was still HIV-free, leading them to believe the early treatment may have eliminated the virus.
